Rainy days

The weather today is so unpredictable. One morning, the sun was up and then it will rain in the afternoon.  This week, we experience some heavy rains again and the traffic is overbearing.   Waiting in a car or a jeep twice your usual travel time will really test your patience.  Sometimes, I will reach home with my head aching and very tired.  But as the saying goes, when you’re in Manila expect the unexpected. 


I have to bring an extra slippers, a jacket, a reliable automatic umbrella (good thing our company birthday give away is like that) my iPod to kill the boredom and a mint candy to keep me awake.  Actually, I really like rainy season than during summer.  The only problem is the traffic jam that will always come next after heavy rains. 



Oh well, as of this time, the rain keeps pouring like cats and dogs.  I only hope there will be no flooded areas on my way home later this afternoon.  There are some rising cases of the leptospirosis disease and it’s creeping me out. My niece, Aubrey had their field trip today.  I hope everything is fine.  And I hope despite of the rain, they will enjoy their trip.

Sick

I’ve been sick for a week now.  I thought that after my birthday and I haven’t got sick, I’m so lucky this year.  But before the month of August ends, I felt the familiar chills on my bones and that starts with a week-long sickness, I’m down with flu for 3 days, cough for almost a week now and needless to say, my ear throbs because of colds and thank God it doesn’t persist that long.  I brave to go to Emergency Room in the hospital last Sunday because I thought the pain won’t go away after taking so many medicines.  But going to an ER will make you sick more because in there you will see all types of people seeking immediate consultations.  Hubby said it made him sick.  After the ER doctor requested for a nebulizer for me and a chest x-ray (which appears to alright, thank God) we hurriedly went home to rest.  My head is aching and going to the hospital that day didn’t help.


I still have cough till now.  I tried my previous medicines and the new meds that the ER doctor gave me but I think the bacteria are here to stay in my lungs.  It made me lethargic.  Sometimes, I dare to confine myself to the hospital to rest and get rid of my cough but I have second thoughts.



I hope I will be better before the week ends.  I need to get well.  Opps, I forgot to say that we are in a BER months now.  Countdown to Nate’s 3rd birthday and Christmas time.  :D

Celebration

It’s the last day of July and tomorrow is the start of my birth month.  I still can’t shake up this ‘sadness’ over me and I guess it’s because I’m having the signs of having my monthly period plus the fact that I'm getting older in few days’ time.  I already filed my birthday leave and a vacation leave the following day so I’m having quite a few busy days ahead.  I told hubby that I will be the one to treat him on my birthday and little he know that I still have this voucher from a posh restaurant in Mall of Asia.  I’ve been saving a lot and this time, it’s my treat.   I still have to add some few bucks though, I checked on the menu and I thought I just need water after his order.  Ha-ha!


We dined at Racks with a few friends from work.  I have the privilege to choose where to eat and I can only think of Racks because I’ve been eyeing to eat their famous coleslaw and melt to the bone beef and pork ribs for quite sometimes now.  Belly full and satisfied, I can’t even drink water anymore. 





I can only think of many wonderful hopes and prayers.  I always thank God for all the blessings.

Lost

I was quite busy these days.  And I don’t know why.  I think I’m having my down days without any particular reasons.  But I think it’s just normal to have this kind of ‘depression’ period, I think way beyond my normal self.  And I’m feeling sad sometimes.  



Well, I need to do something more worthy.  My son is getting hyper as he grows.  He’s on his toddler years and I have to be more careful in dealing with his tantrums.  He’s a sweet boy.  He sometimes wakes us up telling us he loves us.  Oh, I pray he will never get tired of giving us his kisses.  It’s the sweetest good morning greetings of all time waking up beside your loving husband and son.  I feel so blessed. 




I lost P1000 (S25) on my way home last night.  I think when I take out my ID from the pocket of my uniform (blouse), the money came out with it and the lady in front of me ( I was riding at the back side of an FX taxi) was not kind enough to return it me.  I realized it was missing when I immediately felt that there’s something wrong and when I check my pocket it was gone.  I have checked my pocket while waiting for the taxi and I saw that it was there. I usually put my money in the pocket of my blouse and I never lost any single centavo just now.  Well, charged it to experience.  It is my first time to have lost that big amount of money.  Hubby said it was all right at least I am safe.  But I still can’t shake the feeling that someone can take something she never owns.

Daddy's Day

Today, we celebrate father’s day with the family.  Hubby asked me to cook his favourite dish (Kare-kare) and after lunch, we attended my former officemate’s party for her daughter (and also Christening of her youngest baby girl) at the Phil Navy Clubhouse.  I should have declined the invitation because I think we need a special time with hubby but he agreed to go since the place is minutes away from our house and I wanted to see how Nate will react in a big crowd like that.  Plus I wanted to see my old friend, it’s been seven years since we parted ways and we can only see some updates on each other thru Facebook. 



At the venue, I can see the curiosity in Nathan’s eyes.  He kept on looking at the hanging balloons and he observed the kids running around the party.  So when he asked me for balloons, I said you can get one from the stage and he walked carefully, crossed the stage, get the balloons and get back to us.


And when the programme is over, that’s when we saw Nathan dance with the celebrant right in front of the stage and play with other kids.  We scrambled taking some pictures and I asked hubby to capture the moments in his cell phone video.  We couldn’t contain the happiness right that moment looking at him having the time of his life.  Now we know he can have another party for him on his birthday knowing he can entertain his guest in his most energetic ways. 










We went to church after the party, I thank God for having such a wonderful family.  I thank Him for giving me my ever understanding husband.  I am so happy.

Hair Cut Moment

I need to brag this out.  Nathan finally went to have his hair cut without crying his lungs out, wailing and struggle his might out of the barbers reach.  And I swear I was teary eyed when I saw that he let me stand and he sit alone at the high chair.  He even allows the barbers cloth around his body and he has a worried look on his face but the car that the barber’s son allowed him to carry is one of the big factors.  And also, the promise of ice cream and mall strolls helps a lot since I kept on telling him that before we go to the barber shop. But with all the previous hair cut that we’ve been through, no matter how I tell him that it’s okay, he freaks out with the sounds of the razor or the clicking of the scissors. 



 


But I guess, he’s a big boy now and he realized that the scissors or razor won’t hurt him.  I even asked our house keeper to go with us so she can help me hold Nathan just in case he’ll start throwing his best cry and struggle combination.  I just wish I have my cell phone with me to capture this special moment of my life.  We never stop praising him for a job well done.  And of course, we never forget to give him the ice cream we promised.  Best ever :)

Commercial Offer

Nathan loves the mall.  Maybe he acquired it to his Daddy who loves to stroll around to relax.  I think Nate knows that when he saw us both in bed when he wakes up, its weekend and it means SM (his favorite mall of all time).  And he’ll keep on telling that to us till we will be all dressed up and ride the car. 


And his favorite place in the mall? Tom’s World.  And who wouldn’t like to be in that place.  I guess kids and young at heart loves to play.  Later this afternoon, when he’s having a time of his life playing around, a lady approaches me and asked me if how old is Nathan.  I told her he’s 2 years and a half.  She said she’s from an advertising company and my son is handsome and he’s looking for a 3 year old boy for a TV commercial and would like Nathan to audition.   I feel proud right at that moment but politely said he will turn 3 this October.  She asked if he has an older brother.  


I happily told his Daddy about that encounter and he said there will be more of that when he gets old.  Ha-ha! For the meantime, Nathan doesn’t know anything about it and he keeps asking for tokens so he can play basketball.  Well, we’ll cross the bridge when we get there.  Thank you Lord for all the blessings and for this wonderful family.


Happy weekend, friends!
